A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty. -- Author unknown

When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years. --Mark Twain

Fatherhood is pretending the present you like most is the soap-on-a-rope. --Bill Cosby

Father!  To God himself, we cannot give a holier name. --William Wordsworth
